Stamps & Ink Pads

April 2, 2008 Sarah Coggins

I was asked today on a thread at Two Peas in a Bucket how I store my stamp ink pads. In keeping within the restraints of my small scrapping room, I try to keep my stash & tools to a minimum. So far, that means most of my stamps and all of my ink pads fit into one of the drawers in my Crop In Style unit.

I wasn’t much of a stamper until I discovered acrylic stamps. I love being able to see where I’m placing the stamp and the thin profile. Much easier to store versus the larger mounted rubber stamps. The few rubber stamps I have are in a black bag by Generations. It sits on top of my other stamps since it’s easy to move out of the way.

My stamp ink pads, acrylic stamp blocks, wet wipes (cleaning tip I found on Two Peas some time ago), and a few small packages of Studio G stamps from Michael’s fill the right hand side of the drawer.

On the left under the rubber stamp bag are my acrylic stamps. I store a few of the Autumn Leaves stamps in their original packaging.

The rest are stored in CD cases that I labeled with my Dymo label maker.

Finally, my foam stamps are stored in Making Memories jars as mentioned in this post: Small Space Organization {Scrapping Desk}.

    Cool storage idea! A lot better than throwing them in a container the way I do, LOL.

    Sarah, you are so organized. I am not at all, but I do have to say that few stamps I have I keep very organized. I love the idea of the CD cases. Never saw that before.
    Thanks for sharing.

    That's awesome. I have tons and tons of acrylic stamps, but what I don't have a lot of is ink. What is the best ink for acrylic stamps???? I was thinking of ordering stamping up ink, but i heard it's not all that great for acrylic stamps. So do share?

    Great post, Sarah! I really like the CD storage idea...I have several sets that I need to switch over :)

    I store all my acrylic stamps in CD cases. I have a huge box of empty cases I just cannot part with because I might need a few for stamps. I'd love to find some big jars for my foam stamps. I found a few at a dollar store but haven't been able to find enough for my entire collection. I am stamp crazy right now!
